A DISSENTING VIEW Everyone I've spoken to about last night's speech has given Kerry high marks. Liberal hawk Matthew Yglesias disagrees.

UPDATE:Kerryologist Tom Oliphant wasn't impressed either. On the other hand, masochistic Kerry hater/donor Mickey Kaus gushes:

Good enough!...Substantive, non-cheap Bush-bashing! Populism muted-to-nonexistent! Above all, Kerry seemed less pompous, like a guy you could conceivably live with for four years.

If you've been reading Kaus with any frequency, you know that for him this counts as high praise.
